Honiton and District Lions Club has been helping to fund local groups who are supporting people during the coronavirus outbreak.

The club has made donations of £250 to several organisations.

These have included local community transport group TRIP, the Honiton 55plus club, the local foodbank and a meals service being operated from the town’s rugby club.
